Community Engaged Teaching & Learning
Community Service-Learning (CSL) integrates meaningful community service with classroom instruction and critical reflection. Our Centre provides supports to students, faculty and community partners to create rich learning experiences and to build a stronger community.

Check-out the Laurier Volunteer Portal for lots of great volunteer opportunities available to students, staff, faculty, retirees and alumni!

Community Service-Learning is a refreshing university experience because it dares to colour outside the lines of the classroom. Alisha Harkness, Student

We have found working with CSL student volunteers to be an interesting and useful experience. It has been interesting because the students bring a novel perspective to our efforts and are conscientious in working out how to reach an objective. It has been useful because they have done work that has helped us to fulfill our mandate. John Dunbar, Community Partner
